He was never a quitter at anything he did, even if it was finding a broken piece from someone's bracelet they dropped.  He lived his life with a positive outlook. He didn’t dwell, or worry about the little things or nonsense. Always a protector, never judge, never let u down, loved unconditionally, always someone you could confine in, and Alex had a smile that would light up the world.

Alex's youngest daughter Alexandria and first grandchild Leonidas were one day apart. They were super close, and he absolutely loved it. He loved to pick them up from school and take them to the store to get a treat before they got back to the house. It was always the little things that he loved to do that brightened up the kids world. It would also brighten up his life as well. He was such an amazing father, husband, brother, tio, son, and friend. He would be there anytime anyone needed someone to lean on. He really was always smiling and laughing. He was very well educated. He had well rounded knowledge about a little bit of everything. He was very wise.

A good mentor when you needed one. Alex loved to watch football. Raiders was his team.  He had a collection of Raider things he was very proud of. He loved to watch good shows or a really good movie. Some things were Star Wars, fighting movies, martial arts movies, mid-evil time movies or shows, action movies, funny adult cartoons, outlaw shows, hispanic shows, superheroes, marvel, dc, and he had a good amount of comics as well. He enjoyed the times he would go to the movies or eat out with loved ones. He loved to listen to oldies, spanish music, and stand up comedy. He love to bbq the most though. Alex loved drinking with his loved ones and celebrating life. No one could bbq the way that man would, and he always swore it was his first time. He was so many peoples rock. He was always happy. We truly lost a beautiful soul.
